No, I don't. I think of SNA as a communications protocol. I
assumeyou will be telling me that the SNA gateway allowed PC
clients to talk to green screen programs? Instead of using 5250
emulation or tn5250?

One of the things you could do with this, is write a
filter/replace on the RPG programs on the AS/400 side to replace
screen calls with a tcp/ip connection to the PC server, then to
tn5250. You would have to process the screen files and pass them
tot he server. The thing that I don't think would work would be
subfiles, but you might be able to program around that also.
There would be no CFINT.

But that's not the primary thing I have in mind.
